What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]
This is a collection of Catholic Church records from the parish of San Sulpizio in Biella for the years 1740 to 1938.
The collection includes baptisms, marriages, and burials. The records are generally kept in bound registers consisting of approximately 100-400 pages per volume. Some registers include an index at the end of each volume. Volumes prior to 1815 were handwritten by the parish priest in narrative form with details of the event; after 1815, the records were handwritten in printed forms. The text of the records is in Italian; some earlier registers may have the text in Latin. The original registers were kept in the parish archive and a copy was sent to the diocesan archive. This collection was acquired from the custodian of the records at Borriana Archive in Biella, Italy.

- Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each spouse to find a couple's birth records and parents' names
- Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual
- Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family
I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, Now What?[edit | edit source]
- A boundary change could have occurred, and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring area. Search the records and indexes of neighboring cities, provinces, and regions
- Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names
